Hello again,

     This is the second posting of the 1995 NAQP Announcement as promised
earlier.  This one is abbreviated, and hopefully more legible than the last
one I sent out.  For some reason the E-Mail program I use at work, Beyond
Mail for Windows, inserts all kinds of strange things into the text of the
message.  If you would like a personal mailing of the complete set of rules
for the NAQP Contests, E-Mail me directly at W9NQ at aol.com and I'll send you
one.  If you are familiar with the NAQP, you won't need them since there
hasn't been any rules changes to be advised of.

     A couple of other points need to be made as well.  Earlier I mentioned th
at KZ2S and KM9P would be taking care of the 1994 and earlier NAQP awards.  I
have decided to go ahead and take care of the August 94 awards myself since
that is the point at which I took over the log checking and results reporting
chores.  My goal is to have the certificates into the hands of the winners by
the time the results are published in the NCJ (Mar/Apr 95 issue).  The
plaques may take a bit longer depending on the availability of plaque
sponsors.  We'll do the best we can.  I say WE because the last thing I want
to mention is that Steve, N4TQO will be handling the SSB portion of the NAQP
Contest.  Steve and I are looking forward to the challages ahead of us and
hope that together we can continue the growth and popularity the NAQP has
attained over the last 5 years.

     Since Steve is in the process of moving QTH's, send your SSB team
registrations and contest logs to me and I will forward them to him in bulk.

73 es cu in the test.

Bob, W9NQ

PS, if you are interested in the possibility of sponsoring an NAQP plaque let
either Steve or Myself know and we can work it out from there.
